‘Stranger Things’ issues casting call for women willing to cut their hair

Second season of Netflix show expected in 2017

The Stranger Things creators appear to have sent out a casting call for its second season.

Netflix recently confirmed that it has renewed Stranger Things for a second season, expected in 2017. Season two will feature nine episodes – one more than the first – with co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer returning alongside executive producer Dan Cohen.

Now a casting call has been posted online for “an untitled TV series for a major streaming service”, seeking “1980’s-Looking People… especially seeking males with longer hair styles, and females willing to cut their bangs.”


While Stranger Things is not specified by name in the casting call, it has been noted that the filming location is listed as Atlanta, Georgia – where the first season was largely shot.

In the first season, actress Millie Bobby Brown famously shaved her head for the role of Eleven. Watch footage of Brown getting her hair shaved in the clip below.


Executive producer Cohen has described the second season as a “sequel”, saying: “We want a sequel that feels like it’s bigger and badder and darker, while answering more of the questions and getting deeper into what’s going on. [The Duffer Brothers] want it to be that great sequel that is satisfying and yet expands the world.”

On Monday, the Stranger Things kids attended President Obama’s music festival at the White House.
